Robert Combier

Robert Combier is a post-quals PhD student working on the Boeing Design for Manufacturing project. .

Research Interests

His interest and expertise lies in research involving decision-making of complex aerospace systems with a formal awareness of program risk and uncertainty, including:

  • Probabilistic Design
  • Uncertainty Quantification
  • Input Elicitation of Uncertain variables
  • Scaled Uncertainty Propagation
  • Monte Carlo Technique
  • Stochastic Modeling
  • Visualization of Uncertainty/Uncertain Alternatives
  • Transformation of Uncertainty into Risk through implication
  • Uncertainty/Risk Mitigation


  • B.S., Aerospace Engineering, 2006, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • M.S., Aerospace Engineering, 2008, Georgia Institute of Technology
